So, it’s been a tough few years for Geoff Ogilvy. The 39-year-old Australian hasn’t won since 2014 at the Barracuda Championship, and his 2006 US Open win is 10 years in the rearview window now.
He entered this morning’s final round of the RBC Canadian Open trailing greatly, nine strokes off the leader Brandt Snedeker at even par. He fared well on the front nine, recording a bogey-free 32. When he got to the back nine though, specifically on the 13th hole, he really turned on the jets.
That’s right, Ogilvy closed out his round with two birdies, two eagles and two pars, shaving an extra six strokes off his score. He finished with a nine-under 63, one of three players to do so on Sunday at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario.
Ogilvy’s is most notable, though, as it moved him more than 40 spots up the leaderboard and into a tie for 9th. And here’s his approach shot on 18, which earned him that privilege.
